Hey there! I am Christine. I have a full time job in a university but, I am into blogging as a form of diversion from the stressful work environment. Most of the time, I share my personal adventures and misadventures here in my blog. I love writing and I believe that learning is a never ending process. My full time work entails me to do research-related tasks. I am also a part time online research assistant, article writer, blogger, and psychological test developer. I am an independent contractor on oDesk so, if you
think I can be of help or I can provide you assistance with projects appropriate to my skills, feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you

My passport was overdue for renewal which I should have done last June 2011. Good thing there is no penalty in renewing Philippine passports otherwise, I'll probably be paying buckets of money for the delay. With all the "modernization" efforts in the different government agencies, I can say that I am on neutral grounds. We all know that upgrades with government agencies and infrastructures also equate to people making some adjustments or sacrifices err, hassle.
It was my first time to go to DFA-Aseana in Macapal Blvd. I actually didn't know how to commute going there. After a few internet research, I was sure of one thing and that is to go to SM Mall of Asia and take it from there.
So, here's how I got to DFA-Aseana Macapagal Blvd:
1. From Buendia, I hopped onto the orange jeepneys going to SM MOA.
2. From SM MOA, I walked a bit towards the bus loading and unloading area.
3. There are buses with signboard "MIA and DFA", get on that bus. It costs Php 1…
Finally, my long awaited get away pushed through after a few times of rescheduling. Thanks to the long weekend break this Halloween season, my boyfriend and I was able to set foot at the Tamaraw Beach Resort in Puerto Galera. I actually recommended that we stay here at Tamaraw Beach rather than White Beach because the latter is known to be a party place and where most people go to. Unlike Tamaraw Beach which is not so crowded and the ambiance is just perfect if you want to have pure relaxation time. Here are a few things on what I can say about Tamaraw Beach Resort in Puerto Galera: Location: Tamaraw Beach is easily accessible from Batangas Pier -- you just book your ticket directly going to the place. Another alternative is to book a ferry ride going to the White Beach then, there is a shuttle provided by Tamaraw Beach Resort that will take you to the resort which is about 5 – 10 minutes away from White Beach. In our case, we were about to buy tickets going to the White Beach but, I s…
Pandan, Antique is such an idyllic tourist spot which deserves a separate blog entry. In this way, I can also share the beautiful pictures of the tourist spots we visited. Pandan is a municipality of Antique with a total of 34 barangays. Based on my observation, livelihood is from from arts and crafts, fishing and farming. Again, I would like to thank our hostess in our Pandan, Antique tour, our dear Accountant - Ms. Marnie for welcoming us in their ancestral home.
It took us around 30-45 minutes from Caticlan port to reach Ms. Marnie's place in Pandan. We ate breakfast and prepared for our tour at Malumpati Spring Resort and visit at Phaidon Beach Resort. We rented out a van because each area was quite far from the other. There were tricycles available, and perhaps can be rented out as well. It took us about another 30-45 minutes to reach Malumpati Spring Resort. It was a mixture of rough and smooth road. When we got to the place, we paid the Php 10/person entrance fee and cottage…
